The film’s producer, Eros International, revealed this on their social media account recently. Daggubati, Kalki Koechlin and Zoya Hussain will feature in all three films, while Pulkit Samrat has been roped in for an important role in the Hindi version. Vishnu Vishal will play this character in the Tamil and Telugu versions.
According to initial reports, the film will handle issues such as wildlife conservation using the relationship between a mahout and his elephant as the larger metaphor.
Vishnu Vishal recently revealed that he had wrapped up a 26-day schedule of the film in Munnar.
The project was rumoured to be a sequel to Solomon’s Kumki. The film’s spokesperson has since denied the rumours.
